Solar Panel Subsidy in India 2021-22

When we discuss about solar energy, then we think about pricing of solar system, and then after the subsidy scheme of solar panels. Let’s today we know about government solar subsidy scheme & procedure of each states of India. When I start to write this information, then I discussed with many solar industry experts and research self about it. I was unable to find the following information:

  • How can I get subsidy on solar?
  • Where can I apply for solar subsidy?
  • Who is the right person of this scheme?
  • How much can I get subsidy amount?
  • How much does solar subsidy amount of solar system in each states?

What is the meaning of Solar Subsidy?

We know that Solar Energy is the free & clean energy and it reduces the dependency of natural resources, such as Water and Coal. Government wants to install solar power in each houses through which each home’s roof will produce self-energy. Government supports financially to install solar power in residential homes.

Why Government gives Solar Subsidy?

As per discussion with solar industry experts, Government started this scheme to promote solar in residential rooftop sectors, but Solar Subsidy gradually opsilities day-by-day due to government’s policy & procedures in 2020. It has no more clarity about this.

Subsidy Benefits

There are three parties involved in the process: 1. Customers, 2. Channel Partners, and 3. DISCOMS.

#1. Customer Benefits

The subsidy is only available on Residential Homes (Individual Homes & Big Apartments), not commercial and industrial sectors. A solar subsidy is only available on Grid Connected Solar System (Without Battery System). As installing a solar system is a huge investment, the financial assistance motivates people to invest and takes some burden off their shoulders.

  • Subsidy Amount – Up to 3kW – 40% Subsidy,
  • 4kW to 10kW – 20% Subsidy &
  • More than 10kW – No any subsidy

Homeowners can only install a solar system and claim subsidy through the state DISCOM. They will share customer details and register the nearest channel partner. You can find all states DISCOMS from here

If you install solar system though subsidy scheme, the solar installation company will provide 5 years of performance warranty, then after you are self responsible for your solar system.

This subsidy is not available for commercial and industrial customers because they can avail other benefits like accelerated depreciation, tax holidays, excise duty exemptions. 

#2. Channel Partner Benefits

Channel Partners benefit from a larger customer base and more business. It is difficult for a common person to figure out the processes of getting the subsidy though he very much desires it. It is now that the channel partner comes into the picture. He tries to work with the customer and the government departments and expedite the process of getting a subsidy for the customer.

#3. DISCOMS Benefits

Power consumption demands reduce in residential sectors and they can give more in commercial area. We know that Commercial areas need more electricity than residential.

The customer is happy as he got his financial aid, the channel partner is happy as he got a new customer and the government is happy too as it is one step closer to its  solar target installation. 

Subsidy Demerits

Let’s see some demerits of subsidy scheme:

#1. Customer’s Demerits: I think, there are 2 major demerits, if we install solar system through government subsidy scheme.

  • Less Warranty: If you install solar system through government solar subsidy scheme, then you will get full system warranty is 5 years. You will be change an inverter after 5 – 7 years.
  • No Option for Top Brands – If you install solar system through this scheme, then you cannot force desired solar panel & inverter brands, such as Loom Solar, Luminous, Microtek, Exide, Enphase, Solar Edge, etc.

#2. Channel Partner’s Demerits: As per discussion with industry experts, they face the following problems:

  • Big Investment
  • Not Assurity of Returning Subsidy Amount from DISCOMs after giving subsidy amount
  • System Service & Warranty for next 5 years

Solar Panel Subsidy Cost Estimation 

solar subsidy overview

Both central and state offer subsidy schemes to people for installing solar rooftop systems. The central government pays a 30% subsidy for these systems to states in general categories. For special states like states such as Uttarakhand, Sikkim, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir and Lakshadweep, subsidy of up to 70% is given by the central government.

To avail subsidy, the average cost of installation of rooftop PV system without subsidy should be around Rs 60,000 - 70,000. In order to avail generation-based incentive, the customer should generate 1100 kWh - 1500 kWh per year.

A person who is interested in getting a subsidy needs to follow some protocols. He will have to contact their electricity provider (or may even apply online with necessary documentation) who will visit the installation site for a review and give approval. Then the electricity provider visits for inspection. Customers can then avail the subsidy amount.

How to Verify Authorized Vendors/Channel Partners by DISCOMS?

I am sharing few guides to verify authorized vendors/channel partners that you can contact them. You have to visit on your DISCOM websites and search authorized channel partners list in your area and then contact them.

Solar System Cost as Per MNRE Cost

Government has revised solar system price every year. We are sharing with you for your reference. Most probably, you will get similar solar system price through solar subsidy.
